Poly(1-naphthylamine) (PNA) has been one of the seldom explored polyaniline (PANI) derivatives in spite of its versatile electrochromic and optoelectronic properties. The present review summarizes, for the first time, synthesis, characterization, and application studies related to poly(1-naphthylamine) as well as its copolymers, blends, and nanocomposites that have been carried out during the past two decades. Details about the chemical as well as electrochemical techniques used for the synthesis of this polymer are provided along with various procedures adopted to improve its processibility via formulation of copolymers, blends, and nanocomposites. Recent studies dealing with the potential applications of this polymer in the field of catalysis and coatings are also evaluated.
